    I'll probably get one. I need a faster iGadget to run my game... pretty slow on iPod G2 ;)

    as soon as Verizon opens up a loophole(i.e. Changes a rate of some kind) for me to bail... I'm out.. Then it's iPhone 4 for me :)

    Getting it the day it comes out in Australia - my first iDevice :)

    Might be able to get an iPad in August too - fingers crossed!

    Waiting a week or two... Still waiting for them to get the manufacturing process under control.. :D

    I got one ;~)

    The main problem with the iphone 4 is the reception (as shown here:http://gizmodo.com/5573281/have-you-noticed-the-iphone-reception-problem-in-practice); I've experience only one dropped call, so now I hold the iphone more carefully.
    It's also very fragile, so ever time you hold it, it feels like it's gonna break...lol.

    as far as GS games, they all played, but none (including other other games) seemed to pause with the multi-tasking; 'GodFinger' got updated to support iOS4 and it does work with multi-tasking and it pauses...kinda cool, but not really practical.

    All apps always stay open, even after you close them (or swtich apps); so you have to manually remove them from the 'dock'.

    It's pretty fast compared to 3GS, and it blows away 3G.

    I could go on and on...I love it...worth the wait ;^)

    cheers.

    I'm gonna import a 10th gen holographic 3D iPhone from the future.

    You should check out the videos shot with it on YouTube. They are mind blowing.

    I'm considering trying to make a short film shot entirely on mine when I get it - if no one else has by then, that is.

    rdcube - out of interest when you dropped the call, were you holding the iPhone in your left or right hand?
  • chosenonestudioschosenonestudios Posts: 1,714Member
    @rdcube The multitasking on God Finger really isnt that great... If you wanna see how its really supposed to work, check out Plants Vs. Zombies (Vs. 1.1 Supports Multitasking). Its probably bad though because its online.... But on P v Z multitasking is amazing!

    Multitasking works great on my 2nd Gen Touch :D

    @peachpellen, I was holding it with my left hand for about 10min in a zone that didn't had too good reception...when I tried again with my right hand and removed my fingers from the black strip, it was all good even with bad reception.

    @chosenonestudios, 'Angry Birds' has the multi-tasking working and it's great; I sure hope that GS allow us to support something similar.

    Thanks for the update rdcube.

    It seems only left handed folk, or those who hold their phone that way, are having issues.

    I wonder if the rubber thing will help? I might grab one to try when I get mine here.
  • DanielADanielA Posts: 101Member
    Yea i was reading about it and people say apple is trying to make everyone buy because they knew about it or something...
  • peachpellenpeachpellen Posts: 977Member
    I can't imagine that many people holding it like that.

    I mean, you would hold it with your palm on one side and fingers on the back - right?

    Holding it how he is .... I couldn't use it :S

    So far I have not had any issues, simply because I never hold my iPhone in that way!

    Any smartphone will do this if you know exactly where the antenna is and block it. This could be called a design flaw, but the design is what allows the phone be be what it is now with all the hardware it has!

    Also, I can confirm that a case eliminates the problem if you are worried!

    I am IN LOVE with my iPhone 4, especially because I came from the 3G!

    I'm coming from .... nothing. An old Nokia. I can't wait :D Prompted me to get my birth certificate and photo ID to finally get on a contract, lol.

    No iPhone4 for me. But I just got a 3rd Gen iPod touch at http://sellout.woot.com/ for $219.99.
    It was so good I had to tweet it. @CodeMonkeyGG

    How many gigs?
  • CodeMonkeyCodeMonkey Posts: 1,803Head Chef, Member, PRO
    All sold out now. It was a 32GB one.
  • POLYGAMePOLYGAMe Posts: 3,470Member
    I'm just dreading how much they'll be without a contract. I will NOT sign with any company for 24 months... iPhone 5 could be out by the time it's up! lol.
  • iPhoneDevForMeiPhoneDevForMe Posts: 362Member
    But when iPhone 6 comes, you will be completely ready for the upgrade! This is how my situation played out with me getting the 3G!

    I didnt get 3GS, but now I have iPhone 4 (amazing by the way)! Worth the wait!
  • POLYGAMePOLYGAMe Posts: 3,470Member
    I just don't agree in signing up... ends up costing a LOT more in the long run (this part of the world, anyway) and I don't like being any company's bitch. I've also gotten myself into trouble with rent to own/hire purchase stuff in the past... ahem...

    There are some plans that wont cost much more at all over 24 months - Optus will have some great ones.

    Plus if a new one comes out next year they'll let you upgrade free if you renew your contract.

    That is what I'm doing anyway; can't afford it outright XD

  • WeswogWeswog Posts: 1,171Member
